Google has made it easier to work with Microsoft Office files. Now Word, PowerPoint and Excel documents attached to emails can be edited directly in Gmail. Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) cloud office already has compatibility with Microsoft Office suite file formats. Previously, however, email attachments were viewable only — to make edits, files had to be imported into Google Drive first.
According to the resource The verge, Gmail now lets you open and work with Microsoft Office documents directly – just like any other text file, spreadsheet, or presentation in Google Docs. There is no conversion. After editing, the document is saved in its original format and is not converted to Google Docs format. It is also reported that a new Macro Converter plugin has been released for Google Workspace. It is designed to easily transfer macros from Excel files to Google Sheets.
It is indicated that at the moment Google is improving the function of working with documents and images in vertical and horizontal orientation, and also plans to introduce the ability to place images behind text and watermarks. True, the latter feature will not appear until next year.
